Publisher's Summary

Brooklyn North is the true story of how four black men were wrongfully convicted of murder — nearly all connected to a once-legendary NYPD homicide detective, Louis Scarcella. Jonathan Fleming, Sundhe Moses, Jabbar Washington and John Bunn were among dozens of innocent New Yorkers, who spent decades in prison — guilty until proven innocent. This Original documentary follows their relentless fight to unveil an insidious pattern of police and prosecutorial corruption in Brooklyn at the height of the war on drugs and a historic peak in violent crime in the 1980s and ‘90s.

Highly recommended

The documentary of the podcast is very actual and highly disturbing due to the injustice of the state representatives and officials.

Scary

How wrong and unjust that you can be sent to prison for a crime you did not commit because of your colour. The amazing thing is that these men do not feel bitter, but have gone on to help others. What kind of thought process let's the guilty go free , and feel happy about it. Shame on them.

Shockingly good!

A riveting listen! A jaw dropping litany of a corrupted American justice system subourned by evil Police Detectives handing out murder charges like sweets, and a system happy to bury innocent young black men in prison similar to the Count of Monte Cristo!
